If you will turn to the audience copy of this show:

- you will notice that the audience cheers Donna's wails in Scarlet.
I've noticed the crowds often had the same reaction to her childbirth shrieks at the climax of Playing in the Band - for instance here:

or this one:

...and also the 8/4/74 and 5/17/74 versions, among others. Donna Bombs apparently made them ecstatic!
In short, it seems the louder she was, the better the audience liked it. So it's no wonder she kept on screeching, if each time she was greeted by the cheers of a thousand happy deadheads...

These are the same folks who give feedback a better response than Darkstar.


Unfortunately, many Heads at live shows have a slightly skewed response factor compared to a sober listener years later. Although I have considered compiling a Best Of Feedback CD to go with my Best "Take Another Step Back" compilation.

I'd love to see your best of take a step back.

The TASB from summer 1990 with phil and brent is great, cant recall the date right now, before BOR.

I remember being at the 8/6/74 show at Roosevelt Stadium. It's true, when Donna wailed the place went nuts. I remember my buddy turning to me and saying "What the fuck!! That's not singing, shes's screaming like a wounded animal! I guess one of the theories that's been goin' around for a while was that she didn't have a monitor and couldn't hear herself. This sounds way off to me. They spend all that money building the WOS and then lug it around with a huge crew and they couldn't afford to get her a monitor?!? By 76>77 she sounded fine for the most part. Who knows? Maybe the crowd just thought it eas cool to have a chick in the band.
